Coleen and I had just learned this song in preparation for a Christmas program at our local nursing home when the call for contributors to this album was issued. We got together over New Year's weekend to record it. The autoharp is a Fladmark single key C diatonic using a Dm7 chord to great advantage while Maggie and Coleen added backing vocals to put the finishing touches on a fairly simple arrangement.
